I suspect the stock holdings are a direct result of the popularity of the bunnings/wesfarmers conglomerate, which is unfortunate. I was there yesterday and the playground was moved because mothers groups etc stayed for hours at a time only buying a coffee each.

Went there last year and the nursery section was a complete joke. Really off putting. People tell me the cafe is good, but I didn't go in.

cancel my suggestion of Eden Gardens for a gathering with children. went today and the children's playground is no longer part of the cafe but sitting on its own and unused.  I'm sure every time I go there are fewer plants and more stuff.

Neither can I do lunch after the GV. I have to pick up my chicken order at Petrie.

Sorry, can't do after this Saturday's garden visit.

One alternative for those with children could be Eden Gardens at Carseldine.  There is a fenced play area for young children with the only gate into the cafe. It isn't bad for coffee or lunches - weekends are busier than weekdays - and the gardening stuff is easier to resist these days as it turns more into a lifestyle shop than a garden centre.

Might just leave it to others Lissa. I'm pretty unreliable!

The deer farm would be interesting when my son's a little older... When he can walk....

Well.....I think there's a good resturant for peking duck in Cannon hill if anyone's interested after the next garden visit?

Just thought - I'm going to the Lyell Deer Sanctuary this weekend with my 4yr old grandson and son. Anyone else want to meet us there?
